This is huge: Trump, Sanders both using same catchphrase.


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump share at least one thing — the pronunciation of the word huge.

Supporters have latched onto the Vermont senator’s pronunciation of the word “huge.” In in his distinctive Brooklyn twang it sounds more like “yuge.” His fans seem to have picked up on it after a recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” It’s become a catchphrase they shout at his events.

But that word — and the delivery — is already associated with Republican front-runner, and fellow New Yorker, Donald Trump. His pronunciation of “huge” has been imitated by late night hosts and slapped on T-shirts. Trump doesn’t use it much in rallies, though his staff still uses “yuge” as a Twitter hashtag.
